    Pure what? Ameraucana or araucana?

    Ameraucanas would have slate or black legs, no green or yellow.

    How many toes does the rooster have? His coloring looks like a Faverolle.

    jullie an EE could be any mixed breed that lays colered eggs-faverolles have featherd legs and samon is a color not a breed . most faverolle are samon color sice i do not see a singale comb i dont think he is a faverolle mix the silgale comb would be domenent

    Slate has no green tint. Think of a greyish blue. Dark legs over white skin. This is ameraucanas and a number of other breeds.

    Willow is a greenish colouring. Dark legs over yellow skin. This is araucanas as well as a number of other breeds. (White araucanas have yellow legs; black ones have black legs.)

    However they do not have muffs or beards (in the US), and they DO have tufts and are rumpless. That said, breeders use tailed and non-tufted birds in the breeding pens. However, none would use birds with muffs or beards.
